Backups

You know that you need to keep your data backed up. Here are some things to keep in mind. Not all backups are equal. You need to have a backup that you can access if your website goes down or if your hosting provider accidentally deletes your account (this happens). This means that any backup that stays on the server your site is on isn’t a reliable backup. You must have a secure remote backup of you Disciple.Tools instance. This can be with Amazon S3, Google Drive or any other secure storage location.

UpdraftPlus

We recommend and use UpraftPlus for our backups. The free version does not backup Disciple.Tools data, so to use this plugin you must pay for the premium account. See UpdraftPlus for more info.

BackWPup

We’ve also tested BackWPup: https://wordpress.org/plugins/backwpup/. This plugin is free but more difficult to set up.
